Isn't it just a GTO with a body kit and rims? Are you sure this is stock and not aftermarket? BTW I still don't like it. Too skinny in the front and too fat in the back.

I dunno if it's stock or not... i'm assuming it's an '05 with the scoops + body kit. Definitely doesn't look like a stock ride hieght.

Heh. Glad to see someone else saw this too. I found it over on the [H]ard forums. They've got much better pictures, and more of them. I love the way they setup the dual air filters for the ram-air hood:

WOW, that's a HUGE improvement over the current GTO. That's ACTUALLY a car I wouldn't mind owning ;)

Wouldn't mind driving it, but I still think it looks like butt.

The old ones were the good looking ones.

It's amazing how little touches can alter the appearance of a car so much.

I can't really explain it, but that is actually some good looking car there! Almost classic like a Mach1 but has a modern, European feel to it.

The Ramair is not actually set up very good at all. The air enters facing the rear of the car but they'd have to make a 180 degree turn back to the throttle body.

There's just one more thing GM has to fix about that car - price. Make it the average Joe car like the origional GTOs.

Shit, are the muscle cars rising up from underneath? Think about it, Mach1s, GTOs and Chargers dominating the streets again. But this time, instead of fighting with eachother, they should gang up and bully the imports!

I believe it is a Pontiac styling exercise of the current GTO.
